A Smyrna teen has been arrested for his alleged involvement with motor vehicle thefts that occurred this weekend in town.
On Saturday officers from the Smyrna Police Department responded to multiple complaints of thefts from motor vehicles in Sunnyside Village and Worthington developments that occurred during the nighttime hours.
Police said investigating officers secured and processed one of the crime scenes where a forced entry was made to a vehicle. Officers were able to recover fingerprints that were later matched by the State Bureau of Identifications using the Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) to a male suspect.
Police said on Tyler Caputo, 19, of the unit block of Salerno drive in Smyrna, was arrested Tuesday in connection with the alleged burglaries and thefts from motor vehicles. Caputo was charged with seven counts of third-degree burglary, seven counts of theft under $1,500, and one count of criminal mischief.
Caputo was arraigned in the Justice of the Peace Court 7 via videophone and released on $21,500 unsecured bond.
